This exhibition embodies a small cross-section of Paula Crawford's recent studio practice. Beginning with theOrder/Disorder series, Crawford sets out to create a perfect mathematical order of carefully constructed curved lines and then disrupts thatorder with a large-brushed freehand gesture, where paint is allowed drip into its own natural formations. The two Disorder/Order workscontain the same set of repeated motifs as Order/Disorder but are painted in a single freehand gesture. Crawford approaches the linebetween order and chaos without crossing it. "Where does order break down into random chaos?" Crawford asks, "Is there a betweenplace where we experience both simultaneously?" River Cells is the first work of a new series. In this painting, relationships between theinterior (microscopic) and exterior (macroscopic) natural world are considered. "It's interesting," Crawford remarks, " how stones belowthe surface water in a riverbed seem to resemble cell walls or some other under-the-microscope world. I thought I'd try to paint thatconnection."There is no public reception for the exhibition.Location: 505 9th Street, NW; West Lobby, Washington, DC 20004Hours: Monday - Friday, 8 a.m. – 7 p.m.For further information contact:Jean Efron Art Consultants, LLC2440 Virginia Avenue NW, Suite 1210, Washington DC 20037Phone: 202.223.1626 / Fax: 202.223.0275Email: email@example.com / Web: www.efronart.com

Sarah Tanguy is an independent curator and critic, and curator for the ART in Embassies Program. In contrastto the standards of the media and the fashion world, exhibiting artists for Uncommon Beauty will stake out alternative perspectives. Whilethey are important topics, the overall focus of the exhibition is not our society’s obsession with diet fads, obesity, and cosmeticintervention. Instead, the exhibition seeks to investigate the underpinnings of beauty and imperfection; how standards and ideals becomeformed and perceived; and the dynamics of self-esteem, self-hate and acceptance. The intent is to offer something different, unexpected,positive, or ambivalent; something that problematizes the notion of beauty without merely bashing it.*EXHIBITION LOCATION: The Ellipse Arts Center, 4350 North Fairfax Drive, Suite 125, Arlington, VA 22203*EXHIBITION DATES: October 3 rd – December 13 th , 2008*JUROR: Sarah Tanguy, independent curator/critic and ART in Embassies Program Curator*DEADLINE FOR ENTRIES: Friday, April 18 th , 2008 (Postmarked)*WORK TO BE CONSIDERED: Original photography, video, photographic and/or video installations, and photo-based mixed media willbe considered.
